... to the Duomo of Siena. That was beautiful of course. Lastly, we did what have loved to do throughout this entire trip which is SHOP! They had a lot of boutiques in this city and we also found a cosmetic store called Kiko! One of the many things I liked about Siena was the sense of community in this city.
